I thought I spend time on today's post listing samples from some of my favorite crochet projects...HATS!

Usually quick & easy to create, nothing is so deliciously rewarding as to complete one of these projects, successfully of course...then immediately pop it on your head to admire in the mirror.

On a Bad Hair Day, they can cover a myriad of horrors, & on a Good Hair Day they simply make you feel terrific.

They require small amounts of yarn, often enabling you to use up left-overs from larger projects.  The span of an evening is the average time length for completion, depending on the length of your evening & the amount of excitement in the rest of your life.  [This tells you a lot about me, as I spend a lot of time on the pc & crocheting!]

In any case, you can create a hat easily, quickly, & with small quantities of yarn.  If you become enamored of a special pattern, you can whip the chapeau up many times to match different outfits...even give them as gifts [if you don't mind your friends & relatives meandering around in one of your 'signature' looks.]

When you can culminate this crafting adventure with a matching bag, well, words can just not Express!

The picture in the upper left is technically a snood [nor is there a bag to match], but I love it so much that I had to place it in this post.  It covers so much of the head, that it can fall into the cap category also...anyway, that's my excuse.  It is a sublime example of 1950's glamour & every woman should have one.  If you don't have anything to wear with it...make it anyway.  Trust me, you'll be sure to find a reason & outfit for it later!

There is a very large selection of hats & bags available for viewing at my etsy shop.
